Match Preview

Meeting for the 130th time across H2H league and domestic cup (FA/EFL) matches, mid-table Sheffield Wednesday host sworn enemies United, hoping to derail the promotion challenge of the ‘Blades’.
Having kept six clean sheets in nine home games since November, Wednesday will feel confident of doing just that. So too will the Owls’ manager Steve Bruce on a more personal level, as he has a positive managerial H2H record versus United (W7, D1, L1), to go alongside his unbeaten five-game streak (W2, D3) with the club.
Looking for their first set of back-to-back wins at Hillsborough in over 80 years, the United are currently the best Championship team over ten league games (W7, D2, L1) and have won with a clean sheet in their last three league fixtures. On the road, they have suffered just one loss in their last nine awaydays, and are the third-highest goalscorers away from home.
As such, United manager Chris Wilder will be cautiously optimistic of breaking the deadlock against his former manager Steve Bruce (W1, D1, L1). Speaking of deadlocks, only six of the clubs’ H2H matches have ever resulted in 0-0 draws – however, their last two H2H meetings have ended level.
Players to watch: Eight-goal Steve Fletcher has scored three goals in his last two outings and will go head-to-head with Blades’ frontman Billy Sharp who has 22 goals this season as well as three career goals against Wednesday.
Stat attack: Across all competitions, United hold the H2H advantage (W46, D42, L41).
United have failed to score in just four away games this season, scoring over 1.5 away goals in ten matches.
Four of their last five H2H meetings have seen three or more yellow cards (with one dismissal).
